A tongue and groove is a type of joint used to connect two wooden planks together after the milling process. A single board would have a groove milled on one side edge of the lumber, and a tongue milled on the opposite side edge of the wood. There is usually a void area incorporated into the design to compensate for seasonal changes in relative humidity, this area allows the boards to move during these seasonal changes without any damage to the lumber.
We currently offer over six hundred styles of tongue and groove patterns, including butt joints, vee groove flooring, log cabin siding, beadboard paneling, flooring reducers, radius edge paneling, nickel board siding, double tongue and groove profiles for decking, glue joints, full round columns, hexagons, octagons, decagons, pickwick paneling, wainscot paneling, and so much more. Many of our tongue and groove siding details can be milled to any size width you desire, we even have more options for siding profiles located in our shiplap category, these patterns will have a shiplap joint instead.
If for any reason you don't find the type of tongue and groove that best fits into your current architectural design, simply send us a sketch. We would be happy to design a new pattern, cut a plastic template on our cnc machinery, and grind a set of knives in any grade of our high quality knife steel. We also have an easy to use cost calculator located directly under every profile in our catalog, offering immediate accurate price quotes.
